Cambridge Book Club Presents On Dissent

America was founded on the basis of dissent, and we tend to view this piece of our history as a point of pride. Even today, those who question the choices their governments make, and fight for change, are often treated with respect and admiration. But if asked to define dissent, many people would have differing, even contradictory, definitions. This month, Cambridge Book Club will discuss the varied meanings of the word “dissent” and its philosophical, linguistic, legal, and cultural usage with July’s featured title: On Dissent: Its Meaning in America by Ronald K. L. Collins and David M. Skover (on sale now).

Features include: a timeline of famous dissenters throughout history; and blog posts, including one on the Trayvon Martin case. On our Facebook page, we’re hosting a contest featuring quotes by famous dissenters. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates, and share your thoughts with other Book Club readers using #cupbookclub.
